Jai Hemant Shroff, Known as Tiger Shroff is an Indian actor and martial artist known for his work. The son of actor Jackie Shroff and producer Ayesha Dutt, he made his film debut with the 2014 action film Heropanti. Tiger is best known for his commercially successful action films Baaghi (2016) and its sequel Baaghi 2, and War(2019). One of the highest-paid actors in India.
In an interview, Jackie Shroff said that he had ‘no contribution in bringing up Tiger to be such a good guy and that the credit is actually due to his wife and their mothers.
He told the Indian Express, “Three goddesses have brought him up as I was always away for work. Whenever I returned, I used to pamper him. I’m glad I couldn’t spoil him. He’s on a different plane altogether, the way he is disciplined towards his craft and fitness. I don’t do serious talk about work with him. Whenever we meet, I treat him just like any other parent. We talk like friends. I just keep admiring his work and thank God and his fans for making him what he is today.”
In a recent appearance on Arbaaz Khan’s talk show Pinch, Tiger admitted that he’d be negatively compared to his father early in his career. He said in Hindi, “Before the release also, I used to be trolled a lot for my looks. People used to say, ‘is he a hero or a heroine? He doesn’t look like Jackie dada’s son at all.’ It was a deliberate move to play to my strengths.“
